View Full Version : Any information on I-Z16982

03-23-2020, 10:52 PM
Hello. I recently received my Big Y-700 results. I have been given the terminal Y haplogroup of I-Z16982 which is immediately downstream the I-Z16983 Balkan I2 group. This makes perfect sense as my patrilineal heritage is from Modruš, Croatia. I guess I'm just trying to find more information out about it. It's odd to me that many of my closest STR matches are people from Finland (with Finnish surnames) and France (with French surnames). What can that mean about our shared most recent ancestors?

I'd love to find out more about the I2 haplogroup and especially the more recent branches. Thanks.

STRs under I2-Y3120 may not be that meaningful. Here you may take some grasp on the distribution of Z16982: https://www.yfull.com/tree/I-Y4789/ (Y4789 is just a different name to the same mutation).
